I hope there is no strike. They really shouldn't have the right to strike because they are or should be deemed an essential service. Too many people would be affected from a strike including myself who can't drive. I have epilepsy and cannot drive because of my condition. There are many more who will be affected(elderly, students, working poor etc.) For many who don't make much money, this strike could be a matter of life and death. If they can't work then they don't get paid and in turn can't feed themselves or their families.This obviously can lead to sickness and ultimately death.

It's hard to feel sorry for someone who's making 20 to 25 dollars/hour when many of the riders make 8 or 9 dollars/hour. And as for the bathroom problem. I work for 8 hours and NEVER use the staff bathroom. I really don't know how long their shifts are, but if they're not more than 8 hours they shouldn't have a problem.
